Kashmir for sale Article by Bashir Saduzai

After 5, August 2019, India blocked all sources of news from Occupied Kashmir, including human rights activist Khurram Parvez, renowned photographer journalist Musrat Zahra, journalists, cameramen, and people using pen and language. Martyred or sent to torture cells. From Srinagar’s Lal Chowk to the hills of Baramula, from Varinag to Chakoti and from Shopian to the heights of Banyal, the bazaars, plains, ghats and threshing floors are graveyard-like silence and the sound of death. 

It is not known what the people of Jammu and Kashmir are thinking now, only the news of the killing of young people comes continuously, sometimes two sometimes four people are martyred. Because of this, someone would go out of the house without need, that he would be killed innocently, the roads and streets are deserted. Around one crore people are stuck in their houses due to fear. Even the windows do not open for air. They are shocked and worried about this persecution that Aknaf Alam considers them to be prisoners of the biggest prison in the world, but no one comes forward to fight their case. India’s position is that the people of Jammu and Kashmir are satisfied with the move of August 5 and there is no chaos and political unrest in the valley like before, Kashmiris are happy to join the Union of India. The condition of Kashmiris is that every heart is wounded, but to whom should they show the wounded heart. There is someone who shares wounds. 

From the last 75 years, at different times, the statement condemning the atrocities on Kashmiris continues to be issued. It seems that whoever is in the opposition is the one who sympathizes and mourns the Kashmiris when they turn a deaf ear and shut their mouths as soon as they come to the government. The Pakistani opposition made a noise about the Indian initiative in 2019 that Imran Khan sold Kashmir. done.. Today, India has granted Kashmiri citizenship to 4 million non-Kashmiri Hindus, including 2.5 million of them in the electoral voter list who will vote in the upcoming elections. According to the previous election record in Kashmir valley, about 3 million voters have been exercising their right to vote. A lump sum increase of 25 lakhs will bring a big change, which will not only affect the politics of the valley but also the language, literature, art and culture. The national government of all parties in Pakistan under the leadership of Muslim League-Nawaz took a bold step and announced that “Pakistan has rejected the efforts to include non-state persons in the voter lists in Occupied Kashmir.” This can be said for them. “Whoever gives up in the name of medicine, those are the foragers.” Just by giving this statement and keeping silent, will India leave Kashmir in fear or will two or four young people become emotional after reading your statement? They will shout slogans that the government of Pakistan is standing with us, they will be killed for this crime. 75 years have passed on the basis of such statements, a little change with apologies to Salman Akhtar. We have been living on dreams for a long time. Perhaps this is the reason why we have been left alone. Kashmiris are now waiting silently, what should they do if they believe that they are loyal, who will convey their problems to the world, Syed Ali Geelani is no longer on their head. Ashraf is not even a deserter. 

Musrat Alam Butt, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Yasin Malik, Qasim Faktu, Asia Andrabi and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq are all in jails. He left no slack in the struggle, according to the available information received so far, 698 people were extrajudicially killed from August 5, 2019 to 2022. 515 people were martyred in the face-to-face encounter. The total number of those martyred is around 1213. 33 women became widows, 82 children became orphans. 2172 people were injured. During this time, 17139 people were arrested without reason. A total of 96946 people were martyred from 1989 to 2022. 25940 people were injured. 11246 women were raped by breaking into their homes or taking them to army camps. The most horrific incidents are in Kannanposhpura and Sarnakot Poonch where the Indian army used mass rape as a weapon of war. The men were killed or tied up and gang-raped throughout the night. 107,855 children were orphaned. 11,045 houses, 15,000 shops and infrastructure were destroyed. In total, Kashmiris have lost 40 billion dollars so far, now the Kashmiri industry including ceramics is closed in Kashmir, which started during the reign of Shah Hamdan. Since 2011, Hindus have boycotted the products of Kashmiri traders. . Fruit trees in Kashmir were cut down by the Indian army in the name of security threats. The rotten fruit is burning in the valley itself. 8,652 mass graves were discovered. In 2014, the use of pellet guns started, killing 120 people and seriously injuring 15,500. Including children and women, most of them lost their eyes and their faces became scarred. Since 1947, more than 700,000 people have been martyred in the conflict of Kashmir. 

More than 14,000 political workers and leaders are kept in torture cells, including Asia Andrabi and many other prominent women. Today in Indian Occupied Kashmir, in addition to the local police paramilitary forces and secret agency personnel, more than 1 million Indian soldiers have also started using chemical weapons to suppress the voice of Kashmiris, which has collectively caused the civilian population to suffer from various diseases and die. The number is increasing rapidly. Nothing can be said better than what was rightly explained by a lawyer outside the Supreme Court Muzaffarabad on August 19 about the role of Azad Kashmir Government and Assembly. 

Those national members who do not allow the elections of local bodies and students’ union to take place in view of the dangers of their children’s future, that if a young person from the nation becomes prominent and enters politics, they will exclude their unworthy children from politics. What good can be expected. All the political parties of Jammu and Kashmir, whether they are the mainstream parties of occupied Kashmir or the franchise of Pakistani parties in Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, will have to gather at one point and that is the referendum before Azad Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan and There is a need for a vigorous diplomatic campaign against India at the international level by recognizing the representative government of the Kashmiris based on the Hurriyat Conference. should be voluntarily given diplomatic responsibilities so that India can be defeated on the diplomatic front. Otherwise, India left no stone unturned in digesting Kashmir, later it sold Kashmir. It will not make any difference if the government of Pakistan gives lakhs to the opposition.
